Enlightened Equitation, Equisimulation and Eventing at Willow's Leap CANCELLED

Willows Leap Equestrian


Enlightened Equitation, equisimulation, AND eventing... all in one, fantastic weekend!! Willow's Leap is delighted to welcome Diana Waters for a weekend of education and riding.

"Diana Waters lives on the Central Coast of NSW. She trained and qualified as a riding instructor in the UK, where she has worked at over 15 riding schools.

She has always been passionate about riding and teaching, but was unhappy with the normal way of riding, both in training and in competitions, where she felt too much force was used and the natural beauty and spirit of the horse was being diminished as a result.

In 2004, Diana met international teacher and founder of Enlightened Equitation, Diana Moffett. Diana was inspired by Heather's beautiful riding and ethical training, and enrolled on an Enlightened Equitation Teacher Training course. She attained her Level 1 EET with a glowing report from Heather, and is the only person ever to be awarded distinction. She is currently one of only three EE teachers in Australia.

Diana works skillfully and sympathetically with the horse and rider. She teaches the rider to synchronise exactly with the horse's movement, using clear and simple explanations. She teaches precise and correct apllication of the aids, in conjunction with exercises that develop the horse's confidence and balance without force. This results in a horse and rider that move in lightness, balance and elegance, ready to excel in their chosen discipline."

In this special clinic, Diana will work with clients individually on an Equisimulater; teaching you how to move effectively with the horse in walk, trot and canter. Each rider will participate in one group session, and 2 individual equisimulator sessions. This knowledge will then be put into practice on your horse, with 2 private lessons, focusing on timing and the application of the aids, and learn exercises to increase harmony between horse and rider. 

And the added bonus? You get to go cross country training, too! Willow's Leap has over 100 jumps in our purpose built cross country course, and resident EA coach, Lyndel Taylor, will be guiding you around it in small groups. Over the weekend, you will get 2 group lessons with Lyndel, who has over 35 years of riding experience. She has competed up into the starred levels, and has spent many years training both horses and their humans, to jump. 

As this clinic runs over 2 days, and will involve some evening sessions, overnight camping and yards for your horse are also included, as well as all meals for the weekend. 

Numbers are very strictly limited to just 6 riders.

No refunds after close of entries, unless a replacement is found.

If you would like to arrive on Friday evening, this can also be arranged.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.....
